I can’t resist posting this kind of thing, Artist Alexander Khokhlov has taken these photographs which make use of perspective and the make up art of Valeriya Kutsan to create some optical illusions. Like the Lichtenstein image above. and all the various ones below.
What is it with retro studios putting the word Pixel before everything in the names of their games? Pixel Noir looks conceptually like a really cool game, all have to go on is the teaser trailer above though.
It’s well worth a watch. And if I’m not mistaken the people making it have named themselves after Cyan from Final Fantasy VII’s signature SWD Tech.
Perspective is very high concept mixing 2D and 3D gaming by the looks of things seamlessly. Think Echochrome meets Portal. You move about a 2D character who looks suspiciously like MegaMan and jump from platform to platform when you get stuck you pause the game and move the camera about like a 3D first person shooter.
It needs a little polish but it’s still quite cool, considering it’s created as a student project by someone at the Digipen Institute, the game isn’t available to download just yet but you can follow the game’s development by visiting the Perspective Facebook page.
